"Saturday Night Live" returned to the airwaves for the first time in 2018 with a brutal parody of NBC's "Morning Joe" that pitted Bill Murray's Steve Bannon against the man responsible for his firing, "Fire and Fury" author Michael Wolff, played by veteran cast member Fred Armisen.

However, the most cutting part of the parody was without doubt the depiction of "Morning Joe" co-hosts and real-life couple Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, whose satirical dirty talk crossed a few lines. 

Bill Murray's unveiling as Bannon was greeted with a huge cheer, since Bannon had previously only been protrayed as a the grim reaper on the show.

"My God, Steve, I always thought you looked like death, but this is death warmed over," Mika greeted Bannon. Its time for America to slide down the Bannon-ster. The Bannon dynasty is dawning," Bannon replied.

I never said Don Jr. was treasonous, and I certainly never said hed crack like an egg on TV, Murray's Bannon poked Armisens Wolff, eventually giving in, OK, that does sound like me, thank you, good reporting.

Murray's Bannon shared his future plans, which include a new show for called "Cucks in Cars Getting Coffee," creating wrinkled barn jackets called Frumpers for guys and a future skin care line called Blotch.
